BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Teddy Roosevelt Terrier is a small to medium size hunting and companion dog breed that is valued for not only its eye pleasing appearance and useful working skills but also because this breed was supposedly owned by U.S. President, Theodore Roosevelt; hence named after him though no conclusive evidence is present to prove this belief. The exact ancestry of this breed is unknown but it is believed that this breed was developed from various breeds of terriers that were brought to the US by English settlers during 1800s. It is possible that Feist (dog), Bull Terrier, Smooth Fox Terrier, Manchester Terrier, Whippet, Italian Greyhound, the now extinct English White Terrier, Turnspit dog and or Wry Legged Terrier all share in the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier's ancestry. To maximize the scenting ability, the early rat terriers were possibly crossed with Beagles and the resulting short-legged and low-set breed was named Teddy Roosevelt Terrier. It stands between 8-15 inches and weighs anywhere between 10-25 lbs. This low-set and short-legged dog comes with a broad and wedge-shaped head, V-shaped erect or button ears that are set at outside edges of the skull and round or oval shaped, small but predominant eyes which range from dark brown to amber in colour. The well proportioned elongated body has a level backline, muscular and rather short loin, deep chest with well sprung ribs and naturally long or docked tail. Short coat of this breed can be smooth or harsh to touch and comes in solid white, bi colored (a combination of white, blue, lemon, orange, chocolate, red, black and tan) or tricolored (white with markings of tan and black). This breed is NOT recognized by AKC however it is recognized by UKC.

COLOR
In general, the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier comes in solid white, other solid colours with markings and white with a variety of colored patches. It can be seen in solid white, bicolored (a combination of white, blue, lemon, orange, chocolate, red, black and tan) or tricolored (white with markings of tan and black).

COAT
The TRT has a short, dense coat that may be smooth or hard to touch.

PERSONALITY
Though the TRT is evaluated as working terrier, this versatile breed is more than just a useful ratter. This multi-talented dog excels not only in ratting but also as hunter and in agility and obedience trials. This loyal and devoted breed makes an excellent family dog with its lively and amusing personality. Its forever clownish antics will keep every one in the family entertained. This breed is very loving, affectionate and lively and makes excellent playmate of children with its spunky nature. These dogs are tolerant of other dogs in the family. High levels of intellect and a desire to please the owner makes TRT very trainable dogs and they respond well to basic commands and training. Ever on the go, the dog as much like to be cuddled by its master as it likes to play and run. This breed is inherently leery of strangers and will make a good watchdog. The TRT is an excellent family, companion and ratter dog that will prove a valuable addition in the family.

CARE
Short coat of TRT will need only occasional grooming with a firm bristle brush. Bath only when necessary. This breed will need to be taken for daily walks to expel its pent up energy.

TRAINING
Combination of high intellect and strong desire to please its owner makes TRT very trainable dogs. They will respond best to positive training that accompany praise and appreciation for this dog. With consistent training, these dogs can learn to perform many tricks.

ACTIVITY
Though small in size, the TRTs seem to have endless energy which keeps them going all day long. They are highly active dogs and love to play and run. Their spunky and lively nature demands high exercise routines, amply time to play and daily walks.
